    Default Sgt or F/Sgt Harry Green POW 1940 or 1941

    I am pretty occupied with the research about Whitley N1462 shotdown 17/18th June 1941 near Best, Holland with the end result that we have serious plans to erect a memorial hopefully this year in June or when everything is back to normal. One of the crewmembers F/Sgt Bernard Jones became good friends when he was made POW at StaLag luft 3 and met F/Sgt Harry Green or Greene but can't find nothing about him on the POW list. There was a Greene on the Pilzen raid and the 58 Sqdn Whitley returned to England but ditched in the Humber river Sgt Greene injured. I suppose it was not the Harry Green I am looking for. Any clues????
    Cheers,
    Adrian

    Adrian,

    Perhaps 937497 Sgt Henry Edward Greene. POW at Stalag 357. No. 35 Squadron Halifax L9503. 15 September 1941.

    Card in AIR81 says "Enlisted into RAFVR under No 2611866"

    Also turns up injured 11/12 May 1941 http://www.yorkshire-aircraft.co.uk/.../12may41b.html

    Regards,

    Dave

    Hello Dave, I am in touch with the Daughter of F/Sgt J.B.Jones and she confirmed the story you found out about Henry E Greene. She told me that he was shotdown over the English channel, send back to his unit and shotdown again 15 Sept 1941 and ended up in a POW camp. She didn't know about the enemy bombing of Linton on Ouse airfield that he also was injured. Harry had an angel on his shoulders.

    Cheers and many Thanks,
    Adrian

    Hi,

    According the German Luftgaukommando Reports, the crash site is mentioned to be Gettdorf near Kiel, 15 September 1941, time about 2340-2345. The German website below, can tell about a crash, time about 23.37 near Revensdorf (situated near Gettdorf).

    The Halifax L9503 ran into the search light, and was then hit by flak. All crewmembers except the pilot baled out.
